Well we only got one entry, so "Futility" by aiwulf is the winner by default!
Thank you to everybody who joined, and good luck on your future projects!
I'm thinking about asking my coworker for her mother's cookie recipe. They're a family of witches, apparently, and my coworker's son has been haunted since he was a kid. Very spooky cookies, I imagine.
But I'm most likely going to just have spiked hot chocolate and candy corn. Also, pumpkin pie is required.
